Mold Removal Can Improve Properties
Skilled Technicians Use Hepa Filters to Remediate Mold Damage
Mold can grow on many surfaces, so it is important to always have some control over the humidity levels in your home. Different climates and seasons can affect the degree of humidity any home experiences, as can various aspects found inside the home itself.
When your Oak Park home or rental property has a mold problem, you need mold removal and remediation services. SERVPRO technicians are highly skilled and have both training and experience in combating this microscopic invader. Complete mold removal is not possible, as mold is found everywhere, is truly microscopic, and can also be missed by even the most thorough of inspections and remediation efforts. Humidity controls are vital to keeping mold under control, especially after remediation and mold removal technicians have completed their work.
The physical removal of mold often includes vacuuming with HEPA-grade filters. Books are common locations where mold growths are located, as are under cabinets, under stairwells, in bathrooms, inside ducts, and even inside of air conditioning units. Cleaning these rarely involves wet cleaning, but can at times. Our technicians are trained to know which methods are best for the many different materials that mold can affect.
Interior structures are also capable of being contaminated with mold, and this calls for the removal of the damaged materials, such as drywall, wallpapers, and wooden structures. Window frames are often highly concentrated with mold, even in homes that have no mold problems. While some areas, such as window sills, can be cleaned, others need to be removed, and then restored. This is because once mold has embedded itself in porous and semi-porous materials, even if killed, the spores can remain viable. Another risk is the mycotoxins that remain behind. These are often what is behind the health effects caused by mold. Removal and restoration are often the only way to guard against this event.
After mold removal is completed, we will ensure that humidity levels are under control in your home. Preventing future problems is very important to your home's structural integrity and also your family's health. Installing dehumidifiers that drain into appropriate locations in your basement can create a problem-free solution to moisture problems in your home.
